Well.. it's not quite the same as a kvm. Synergy is meant to meld two
machines running side by side (with two monitors) into effectively one.
You still have two monitors/workspaces but you are able to bind them to
each other as if it was two heads on one machine and move the mouse
between them, share a clipboard, etc. It is certainly damn handy though
where your desk is taken up with multiple keyboards/mice because you have
a few systems in front of you.
